Hot glued together-messy
Very disappointed. Bought 5 of these. First two I bought, I never noticed that the seams were hot glued which means it’s obviously defective. It was the second order that I placed a week later for three of them and looked like a 5 year old hot glued these things. It was all over the bucket. Inside and out. The messiest job I have ever seen. How could you sell something like that? Very disappointed that I just spent $100 plus tax plus delivery for product that’s so disgusting and shouldn’t even be sold in a store. I’m using them to garden with so if they end up leaking I’ll accept it.... but now I have to clean up all of the hot clue mess all over the tubs. You guys should have used flex seal or something... very disappointed.

Used this for planter in raised bed area. Punched some holes in the bottom and filled with top soil. One recommendation is to remove the labels with a strait razor while you can turn it on it's side. It has a lot of labels and stickers.

We bought them to use to hold ice and drinks for a wedding reception. They were perfect for our needs and the price was spot on.

Short Life Span
I'm on my third tub in 3-1/2 years. Behrens advertises this product as rust proof, but I beg to disagree. I use this tub as part of an outdoor water feature with clean water constantly cycling. Within months, rust starts at the seams and eventually becomes so prevalent the tub begins to leak. On my previous tub, I even tried applying a rubberized spray on the interior and exterior bottom of the tub, but the rust still causes leaks in the bottom. In this case, you get what you pay for. Fortunately, I'm able to repurpose the old tubs as garden planters which don't need to be water tight.
